The High Line 23: Innovation to Every Last Shade
If you walk down 10th Avenue and 23rd Street and take a look at the surrounding infrastructure, you could not help but think, one of these things is not like the other.
The High Line 23, or HL23, has a stainless steel and glass exterior that expands as it rises, giving it a mechanical, aerodynamic look. The north and south façade are made up of spandrel-less windows, some with unusual trapezoidal shape or slope. For a building so cutting edge, it was imperative that every last detail maintains that same veneer of posh modernism.
Shading Systems, Inc. provided the HL23 and its roughly 300 windows with its single-panel, custom motorized roller flat shades from Mechoshade. Like the unique architectural design of the windows, the shades had to match the windows’ artistic expression without overpowering them. Many of the shades have the same trapezoidal shape that parallels the innovative design of the Highline 23. They are also solar and blackout shades, ideal for the large panoramic view every apartment has to offer. All the shades installed in the building are remote controlled and many are trendy sloping shades in bottoms up or top down configurations.
All in all, the shades are stylish and original while still holding practicality and minimalism. With the chic combination of efficiency, simplicity and style, these motorized shades by Mechoshade are the finishing touch to a fledgling landmark befit for New York’s High Line.
